West African Hand Drumming


Adult Enrichment / Music & Theater -
Summer 2022

Explore djembe, a goblet-shaped drum played with bare hands, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Learn techniques to make basic drum sounds—bass, tone and slap—to create rhythms integral to West African culture. All levels are welcome, and no experience is necessary. Please note: A limited number of drums are available to borrow.
